DAVEFAN95 Posted July 8, 2018 Share Posted July 8, 2018 Russo fired from TNA, replaced by Paul Heyman March 31st 2007. It's confirmed. TNA president Dixie Carter announced this morning, that after Destination X and the Fire Russo chants that erupted during the Last Rites match between Abyss and Sting, Vince Russo has been officially removed from the TNA booking team and have confirmed that former WWE employee Paul Heyman will be added. Heyman, who has been sitting at home since the abysmal ECW December to Dismember, has been lauded as one of the best bookers in wrestling history, making ECW into a cult phenomenon and making the Smackdown brand viable during the Smackdown Six era. Although Heyman won't be the head of the booking team, it is believed he will have a strong influence on booking decisions due to his past successes. Although clearly behind WWE, TNA have been on the rise as of late adding big names to their roster over the last few years such as Sting, Christian Cage and Kurt Angle to a great roster of TNA originals of AJ Styles, Abyss and Samoa Joe. Heyman has a plethora of old and new toys in his hands now as he will enjoy reuniting with Kurt Angle from Smackdown and the Dudley Boys and Rhino from ECW, but many are also looking forward to how he might use Sting, Joe and AJ, as well as what his opinion is on the X Division. Heyman will apparently begin his tenure on the booking committee tomorrow to set up for this Thursday when TNA impact airs. I'm sure no wrestling fan will want to miss it.
